Question Weight distribution in 29h Outlaw question

We travel with 3 dogs. When we travel in the Chevy Suburban, the dogs are in their crates. For the RV we bought a bank of three aluminum crates that were going to go across the width of the garage. The three crates were ordered as one unit for stability and can’t be separated. BUT After traveling on two short trips, I would rather have the crates along the left side wall for access to the patio. The crates weigh about 100 lbs and the dogs add another approximately 180 lbs. for the three dogs. Total weight of dogs and crates is +/- approximately 300 lbs. Pus whatever is in the overhead storage. My concern: is that too much weight on one side of the garage?

You should be able to move other stored items around a bit, and that'll help even things out.
Either way: I don't think that it will be a problem.
If you wanted to be 147% sure: add some SumoSprings.

Thank you. We’ll do that. Move things around. We have two Airedales and a Weimaraner and wanted them to be comfortable. The Airedales still freak out in the RV. The Weimaraner is calm. Like - whatever - another car.

I'm putting a touch over 1200 pounds worth of motorcycle in mine...
But it would STILL rather be ridden to the destination!

I know... But real Husbands sometimes need to take the Missus, and her puppy along with them...

Yup. If it were up to me, I would just load a tent on the Road King and go. Wife has other priorities.

...And when those other priorities are made known to us: we're cooked!

Thank you. We’re looking forward to our first trip of the year out later this Spring.
